Better is a dry morsel and quietness with it
Than a house full of feasting with strife.
Better is a dish of vegetables where love is
Than a fattened ox served with hatred.
It is better to live in a corner of a roof
Than in a house shared with a contentious woman.
It is better to live in a desert land
Than with a contentious and vexing woman.
Better is the little of the righteous
Than the abundance of many wicked.
“I was due to offer peace offerings;
Today I have paid my vows.
